My sister & business partner, Rebecca, loves to bake, and homemade pies are one of many things she has skillfully mastered. This past weekend I asked her to test out the pumpkin pie recipe featured on the vintage pie plate we offer here on our website. She happily agreed!
She humored me with wearing one of my many vintage aprons and began. Now, I must tell you that Rebecca often loves to change-up recipes and modify the amounts called for. She also has a huge talent for throwing a recipe together “her way”. Truth be told, whatever she prepares comes out delicious! Hmmmm... could there be a TVL cookbook in the future?
For this posting, I asked that she follow the pumpkin pie recipe printed on the pie plate exactly. The result was amazing! She had prepared the pie crust using her own recipe that resulted in a light and flaky crust. The pumpkin pie came out looking & tasting scrumptious! The filling itself had a custard-like consistency and a velvety-smooth texture. I volunteered to taste-test this beautiful looking pie once cooled. It was even more delicious than it looked! The original recipe on the plate calls for 1 cup of sugar! I asked her to bake a second pie following the recipe with one exception -- use less sugar. She used 1/2 cup in the second pie. It turned out every bit as good, just not as sweet.
These vintage pie plates with the recipe printed on the plate make fabulous gifts. Simply include a few of the ingredients from the recipe in the pie plate along with a spatula & spoon, tie with some festive ribbon and you have a delightful holiday gift! Give one to the baker in your life… or get one for yourself and you’ll never lose the recipe!
Make any day Pieday!
